    eh...

    I had high hopes for this, as an intro to the specifics of Lutheranism and Lutheran worship - but I was disappointed. It is far too light in the specifics of Lutheranism and spends too much time trying to be cute or quirky. If you want the in's and out's of Lutheranism, go somewhere else.
